New Announcement on PPA Board Elections!

In 2021, we are holding a Special Board Election in September to fill two board seats as all of our board member terms are adjusted to conform to the city-wide neighborhood elections in May of each year beginning in 2022 and coordinated by the City of Minneapolis Neighborhood Community Relations (NCR) department.
We are excited to partner with NCR for the PPA Annual Board Election. At the June Board/Community meeting the PPA Board unanimously passed a resolution, reviewed by PPA's legal counsel, to move our regular Board of Directors election to May from September in order to participate in NCR’s city-wide election date. NCR will provide their resources to publicize each neighborhood's election. This will help PPA reach more Prospect Park residents and ensure greater community engagement!
